Father, Our God, You are our Protector and our Comforter. In our most difficult moments, You faithfully ensure that we are not up against anything beyond our abilities. When we face adversity, You guarantee us help so that we are able to endure. And when things become unbearable, You provide us timely relief. Help us to take this truth to heart and rely on You instinctively. In times of hardship, enable us to persevere, to keep on pursuing our goals, and to never give up. Amen.
